Sony has updated its DVD camcorder with the DCR-DVD301. It has a big 3.5-inch SwivelScreen hybrid LCD display and can record directly to 3-inch DVD-R/-RW discs, which play in most current home and PC DVD players. The screen’s hybrid technology minimizes LCD washout even in bright sunlight and can rotate up to 270-degrees for multiple viewing angles. Beyond its 3.5-inch screen, the camcorder will share most of the same features as the DCR-DVD201 DVD Handycam camcorder, such as a one-megapixel Advanced HAD CCD imager and the ability to take one-megapixel digital still images. The DCR-DVD301 model will be available in October for about $1,100.
